Adams coming to town

The majority of Georgia fans have wanted one thing since April.

Bulldog Nation has been clamoring for Dooly County defensive tackle Montravius Adams to make the three-hour trip to Athens.

The five-star defender visited Georgia three times this spring, but has since taken visits to Alabama, Tennessee, Clemson, and Auburn since.

As a matter of fact, Adams has taken multiple visits to both Auburn and Clemson since last visiting the Classic City, and saw both teams when they faced off at the Chick-Fil-A Classic in the Georgia Dome earlier in the month.

On Saturday, the second-ranked player in the Peach State says that Georgia fans will get their wish.

"Yes sir, I'll be there (for the Georgia vs. Tennessee game)," said Adams via text message Tuesday night.

Adams' decision to visit Georgia is big news for the Bulldogs as Auburn and Clemson had established themselves as the team to beat.

The Vienna native's original plan was to visit UGA when they faced Ole Miss on November 3, but decided to make the trip on Saturday because of an invite from his coach.

"I was going to visit anyway and go to the Ole Miss game at least, but my head coach (Jimmy Hughes), told me that him and his wife and daughter were going, so I wanted to go too."

With Saturday's trip now scheduled, will Adams still visit for the Ole Miss game?

"Yes sir," he said. "I'll still be going back up for that game."

Much has been made of Adams' mother's role in his decision, and the Peach State prospect had originally thought she would visit Athens with him this weekend.

As of now, he doesn't know if that will still be the case.

"We are having this big family cookout because my uncle just came home from Afghanistan," said Adams. "All of my family is going to be there, and she may stay home to help with that. I'm not sure what she is doing to do, but she will visit up there some time."

Adams told UGASports this winter that he and his family wanted him to go out of state to play his college ball, but after taking multiple visits to the Classic City this spring, the Rivals100 defensive tackle changed his tune.

He now lists Georgia as a team in which he has "high interest" and Georgia will now have its first chance since early April to host the top defensive player left on the Bulldogs' board.

Adams still plans to release a top group of schools after his high school season, and make his final decision close to signing day.

He also now knows where he will take a few of his official visits.

"I know three (official visits)," said Adams. "LSU, Oregon, and Southern Cal."
